Hair Pollution Salon, formerly known as Way Cool Hair, established in May of 2005. An extraordinary atmosphere with nothing but good vibes flowing throughout. The front door is always open for pedestrians, bike riders, drivers, and all sightseers to stop by just to scope the originality that sets this salon apart. It’s worth the visit to meet the funky (yet personable) stylists, check out the monthly featured art, peep the unique decor and car mounted to the wall, enjoy live music on Saturdays, and view the art that is loaded inside and out the building. Hair Pollution salon is also known for their boutique and art gallery. The vintage boutique located inside the shop is supplied with one of a kind apparel, belts, shoes, and purses. The art shows are hosted on the first Sunday (after First Friday) of every month with new featured artists. Join us at our upcoming events and come support collaborated works by local artists and musicians from 6pm-8pm for free! Stay tuned and see what Hair Pollution is getting their hands into by simply befriending us on Facebook! PS: Always seeking DJs (large events/Saturday tunes), wardrobe stylists, models (no experience required),musicians, photographers, and many other entertainers to participate in our annual benefit hair & fashion shows.
